Our Calming Clothing is a range of innovative clothing for children with sensory processing disorders and differences. The clothes look just like any other typical run of the mill kids' clothing, but are so much more! Specially designed to provide deep pressure input across the day, these clothes can be both calming and / or alerting, depending on the needs of the individual. Deep pressure is a universal organiser, which means it will lift you up when your arousal levels are low and bring you down when you're high! These clothes may be particularly useful for children who seek out proprioception / deep pressure input, for example by squeezing in to tight spaces, burying themselves under mountains of cushions, asking for lots of big hugs, engaging in rough and tumble play, or similar behaviours. Deep pressure input can have a range of positive effects across a number of areas for a child, including their ability to attend to activities, engage in tasks, interact with others, and more.
This garment is constructed from premium quality combed cotton Lycra blend and is proudly Australian made. 100% Organic Cotton Rib on neck and cuff. The cuff has a thumbhole that may or may not be used. When the thumb is in the hole it anchors down the sleeve to a neat fitting and creates a cosy encasing for most of the hand.
Tags are only on the outside of the garments to reduce tactile input for sensitive souls.
Please seek advice from your Occupational Therapist if you are unsure as to whether this is an appropriate product for your child.
